. they almost passedded a 16th bill but obama refused to sign hr-2904, the "this is not another repeal of obama care, we swear but don't look inside it, just sign it" act. but you can't blame congress for how little they get done. taking a position on anything is political suicide. just look at senate minority leader mitch mcconnell. he's the most obstructionist, bill-blockin'est human law-cork ever to jam up the hauls of congress using the filibuster 413 times since 2007, twice as much as the last democratic minority which earned him the nickname "senator gridlock." yeah, good olsen tore gridlock, the kentucky constipator, the louisville plugger. but even the leader of the do-nothing congress is is now being punished for the handful of times he done did something. >> mitch mcconnell is getting primaried hard. an open letter, this is incredible to me, from 15 kentucky tea party groups said senator mcconnell's progressive, liberal voting record and his willingness to roll over and cede power to president obama and the liberals in washington prove he is no friend to the american people o

status with additional scrutiny, president obama promised his administration would fully cooperate with conscious in its investigations. he also stated that he directed treasury secretary lew to follow up on the i.r.s.'s inspector general audit to get more information as to how this happened and who was responsible to make sure that the public understood all the facts. i was encouraged by this initial response. as you recall, mr. president, i worked to clear the way for secretary lew's confirmation here in the senate. even though many of my colleagues had expressed legitimate concerns about his nomination. i did so in large part because i believed him when he promised to be fully transparent and cooperative with congress. when the president said that he'd ordered the secretary to get to the bottom of this, i expected him to live up to his promises to do so and to work with us as we try to do the same. imagine my surprise then to hear both the president and secretary lew state over the past week -- say that with our investigations into the i.r.s. targeting, congress was creating a -

has never really been chillier. but there is certainly not much conversation going on. esident obama, according to sources in the white house, they say that ty are meeting on a one-to-one basis and there was that large group that happened just a few months ago and so a number say that they are not making much headway on anything that would resemble a grand bargain. neil: not encouraging, but thank you for the help. happily, what do you think? >> president obama wants to create the perception that they are willing to bargain and compromise and willing to come to the center. but if you looat the details of the president's proposal, and so far as there are details, it doesn't look like there's a lot in there for people who believe in government. >> you meet with the democratic leaders to sort of get them all on the same page. but a day after when you offer this, it was game changing not to include republicans in the game the next day. i don't think that that is good. >> it is time for the democrats and their point of view, and i'm sure republicans on the other side are getting their tal

weighing whether to cancel president obama's planned summit with putin next month. >> we will obviously be in contact with russian authorities, expressing our extreme disappointment in this decision and making the case clearly that there is absolute legal justification for mr. snowden to be returned to the united states where he is under indictment on three charges felony charges. >> brown: meanwhile, the president met privately with a bipartisan group of house and senate lawmakers to address concerns about the n.s.a.'s surveillance programs. back in russia, snowden now has a grant of asylum for at least a year. that can be extended indefinitely, and he even has the right to seek russian citizenship. a short time ago i spoke to paul sonne of the "wall street journal" in moscow. paul, thanks for joining us. how much of a surprise was this in moscow? >> i wasn't a particular surprise. there was a lot of writing on the wall here that the kremlin was going to make this decision and the real question is why was the kremlin predisposed to granting edward snowden asylum? there's probably a num
